Spooner: Another Loveable Loser Indie

The trailer for Spooner, starring Matthew Lillard (!), which will be playing at the 2009 Slamdance festival:

So, yeah, it’s one of those movies. The ones where there’s a loser guy who doesn’t know what to do with his life, and then he meets a manic pixie dream girl who, for reasons never fully explored, gives his life a purpose. And that is fine, because I like those kinds of movies. Say Anything was one of those movies. Eternal Sunshine was one of those movies, but with a metaphysical element. And Eternal Sunshine is the best movie of the ’00s. And it’s good to see Matthew Lillard again, for real, so Spooner Is Just Fine.
